What People Say About Dr. Eric Thorn, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I've been seeing Dr. Thorn as my cardiologist for about three years. He listens well and respects my layman's inputs. I chose him because of his interest in preventive cardiology. Happily, he has kept me from "advancing" to international cardiology.
